Subject: Amazing voyage of Captain Cook and crew.
One cannot read this without being amazed at the intelligence, skill, determination, and courage of Lieutenant/Captain Cook. To undertake such a voyage at that time, with no form of rescue in case of shipwreck, which happens, or any other disaster that could befall them, and to accomplish all this successfully with losing only one man I believe, is surely one of the greatest voyages in all of the history of exploration.
